An accident or injury that can happen to anyone is often the cause of a vascular trauma. Any form of damage to blood vessel(s), whether it be mild, moderate or severe, contribute to Vascular Trauma. vascular trauma can cause clots in blood vessels and interrupt blood flow to the distal parts of the affected extremity or cause hemorrhage with excessive bleeding. Based on the type of trauma that caused the injury, Vascular injuries are classified as blunt injuries when blood vessels get crushed or stretched and penetrating injuries where the blood vessels are punctured, torn or cut. However, It is not a cause for concern as vascular trauma treatment in chennai is considered to be among the best.
Vascular Trauma is more commonly caused by domestic, industrial or road/rail/air traffic accidents. Violence and physical assaults with weapons also contribute to major cases of vascular trauma. Sports injuries can also cause damage to blood vessels. Natural calamities like earthquakes and landslides are other causes of vascular injuries.
Signs and Symptoms
Excessive, continuous bleeding from wound
Bleeding subsequent to the piercing of a vein
Hemorrhage can lead to heavy loss of blood
Thrombosis – formation of blood clot within the blood vessel. The clot can detach from the blood vessel and travel through blood (embolus) and cause a block in heart, lungs or brain.
Scarring or incomplete healing can result in weakness of blood vessels and lead to vascular diseases
Minor vascular injuries post-trauma may remain subtle and show up after a while. The only way to avoid negligence is to map the blood vessels of all injured limbs immediately after the injury. Imaging is necessary is to understand the nature and scope of injury. Other diagnostics may include, Duplex Ultrasound scanning, CT scanning and Angiography.
More serious limb vascular injuries exhibit absent pulses, ischemia, active bleeding, and pulsatile hematomas as “absolute signs”. Such signs indicate that trauma surgery should be immediate. Vague symptoms include unexplained hypotension, neural damage and effects on large blood vessels adjacent to the trauma site. The clinical significance of such signs are usually explored at the time of emergency and a detailed diagnosis is made by a team of Trauma surgeons, Orthopaedic surgeons, Neuro surgeons and Vascular surgeons.
Best Treatment for Vascular Trauma at Laser Vein Clinic
Vascular injuries mostly need surgeries to repair the damage caused by the trauma. Primary anastomosis, Reverse Saphenous vein graft and lateral repair are some of the common surgical procedures carried out as per the demand of the type of injury.
If a vein of the extremity is injured, a procedure called ligation is used where the blood vessel is tied off.
A surgical bypass is more often required to repair a damaged blood vessel using natural or prosthetic grafts.
Endovascular surgeries are less invasive and can be applied in certain vascular repairs. Balloon stenting can widen blood vessels that have scarred and narrowed after injury. If needed, a stent may be placed to keep the blood vessel open for sufficient blood flow.
In conclusion, endovascular surgery is a minimally-invasive, effective option for treating varicose veins in Chennai. This technique has proven to be successful in widening and restoring blood vessels in injured areas. With the help of balloon stenting, a stent may be placed to ensure proper blood circulation.
